I celebrated International Crochet Day on two fronts this year.
I began the day with cup of coffee and the purchase of the pink. handspun alpaca-merino blend yarn that had caught my eye when I went to visit the Circle B Alpacas:
When this yarn arrives I am going to photograph it, and then get out my L hook and the pattern for the hat worn by the tiger in this photo:
and get to work.
Once the yarn was ordered, I finished my coffee, got a few household chores out of the way, and then once again turned my attention to the project that will not let me rest: my 2011 North Carolina State Fair project.
My most recent efforts have been focused on what I term: Bauhaus Quilt Block III, and today, I continued making pieces and then joining them to make this motif:
Shortly before dinner, I had joined the pieces to the Bauhaus quilt blocks seen here:
While I am finding that the huge tangle of pieces I have already made a bit overwhelming at times, I am hopeful that tomorrow, I will be able to summon all of the joining mojo the universe has to offer and convert more of the tangle into finished quilt blocks.
